Great place to get experience, not a great place for a full career

Senior Finance Manager (Current Employee) Benton Harbor, MI (US)

ProsYou will work with intelligent people who have a passion for their work and are fun to be around. You will be challenged with interesting projects and will be given a lot of responsibility. Everyone around you is driven to win. If you are early in your career and want some excellent experience and want to build your resume for the next move, this is a great place to be.

ConsThe talent pool evaluation process is rank driven, which drives bad behavior sometimes (throwing others under the bus in order to appear to be a stronger player in the talent pool). There is also an 'up or out' mentality which makes a long term career almost impossible. The organization is flattening, so upward mobility is shrinking, which is driving talented people to leave the company in order to find promotional opportunities.

Advice to Senior ManagementThe current path is going to drive a talent pool of people with very shallow experience in leadership positions, which means you will continue to make the same mistakes over and over. There is a place for talented, experienced director and senior director level leaders who are not on a path to be the next members of the senior executive management team, and you should focus more on developing that pipeline.

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
